Counsel for the State and respondent No. 2 have not disputed

that the parties i.e. petitioner and respondent No.2 (complainant) have

arrived at a settlement with an intent to give burial to their differences.

Perusal of allegations in the FIR reveals that the present case

squarely falls in the category of cases that can be quashed by the High Court,

in exercise of its inherent power under Section 482 Cr.P.C. Keeping in view

authoritative enunciation of law laid down by Hon’ble the Supreme Court in

‘Gian Singh v. State of Punjab and another’, 2012 (4) R.C.R. (Criminal)

543 and in the light of facts and circumstances discussed hereinbefore, this

Court is of the considered opinion that continuation of criminal proceedings

would amount to abuse of process of law and it is expedient in the interest of

justice that the same are put to an end.

For the foregoing reasons, the petition is allowed, FIR No. 118

dated 20.12.2017 under Sections 406, 498A IPC registered at Police Station

Women Cell, District Ludhiana and proceedings emanating therefrom stand

quashed qua the petitioner(s).
